Re: Which 225/45-17 tires

i had Nankang NS-1 225 45 17

and they were pretty badass.

they are cheap as **** (i paid 225 for all 4 brand new!! )

the summer traction is very good, a clear point of traction loss and a quick recovery if it did break loose,

i even took em to the snow... and they rocked!

not nearly as good as snow tire but they were good tires!

I'm getting them for my new 18" Murano wheels within the next few weeks for summer tires and they're amazing.

Re: Which 225/45-17 tires

I'm a big fan of Michelin Pilot Sport PS2. When I went to order them for my SVX, though, they were sold out. The tire place recommended Continental Conti Sport Contact 2. He said they're as good, and they were a little less expensive. I haven't driven my SVX since i've installed them, though, so I can't report.

Re: Which 225/45-17 tires

I just ordered a set of 225/45/17 Bridgestone Potenza RE-01Rs to put on my summer wheels. The tires should be here any day now. Tirerack is blowing them out to make way for the new model (RE11 I think?) Normal price $188/each - I paid $104 Fantastic deal on top-rated summer tires.

UPS dropped me a set of the same (in 245/40/17) yesterday afternoon. They were $116 each or so.
